Preston’s track & field program is off to a strong start with great performances by both the boys and girls teams. They swept the titles at the Burley quad on March 19, and the boys won the Cache Box Invitational in Logan on Mar. 24-25. They travel to Boise on April 3, to compete at Borah High School.

“Both teams have had a great start to the season,” said Coach Brandon Lyon. “The boys team win at Cache-Box was a big deal considering the amount of talent in Cache Valley. On both the boys and the girls side we have seen some very good times and marks that really give us a lot of hope headed into the season. At the beginning of the year, we really didn’t know what to expect having lost last year, but if these early results are any indication, we really like where we are at the district level and the state level. We look forward to the coming weeks.”
